You might rely on your morning cup of coffee to boost energy and metabolism on a daily basis but did you know coffee provides antioxidants internally as well as externally? The purported skin benefits from coffee are primarily obtained topically.
Here are some reasons your skin will thank you for an external exfoliating coffee boost :
It makes skin smooth and bright: Because of its qualities that signal tissue repair, coffee plays a crucial role in regulating cell re-growth, leading to retained hydration (increased collagen) and increased skin elasticity and also helps decrease the appearance of sun spots, redness, and fine lines
It enhances circulation: When coffee promotes blood circulation, it leads to healthy and energised skin, effectively reducing the swelling of tissues and de-puffing areas of the skin.
It’s a rich source of antioxidants: The environment is full of free radicals (pollution particles, etc.) that wreak havoc on the skin. However, loading up skin with the antioxidants in coffee protects it and bolsters its natural defenses. In fact, a study showed that coffee bean extracts can be responsible for skin cell energy preservation due to its free-radical properties.
